Here are some of the slightly more unusual tweets we’ve come across. What the fudge indeed!
@fgw refusing a woman with bike boarding at oldfield park? Even when a man and HIS bike offer to get off? Then cancelling service? Shameful

You'd have thought a train home at this time of night would be relatively smooth. Yes, until the driver overshoots a station. Well done @FGW

@FGW We've overshot the platform at Twyford, so driver is changing ends and taking us back. That's a first for me

@FGW been sitting here 35 minutes. Now told the train has to go back to Newport and terminate. We were sent down the wrong track. Shambles.

Astonishing. We have been sent down the wrong line, towards Bristol. Train had to reverse in order to rejoin London track. @fgw
